president bill clinton, soon to be in raleigh, north carolina campaigning on behalf of president barack obama. and right knew president obama is headed to the battle ground state of ohio. he talked to voters there about job growth and how governor romney's ideas won't work. >> but here's the thing, florida. we know what change looks like. what governor romney's offering ain't it. giving more power back to the biggest banks, that's not change. another $5 trillion in tax cuts for the wealthy, that's not change. refusing to answer questions about the details of our policies until after the election, that's definitely not change. >> president obama also told voters that he would fight hard for them and their families. and if you hope the polls will shed some light on who will win? forget about it. cnn editor paul stein hauser is here to do the math for us. paul, what do the national polls look like? >> two days to go, and we have four polls that are nonpartisan and came out since midnight. let's start with the abc news/"washington post." 48% of likely voters supporting the president.

. but paul ryan was here yesterday. mitt romney will be here tomorrow. bill clinton last night and this morning. there is a lot of surrogate traffic and part of that is because early voting is under way right now and goes on through tomorrow. and both sides are really trying to energize people and get them out to the polls during this week. >> brianna, i'm looking behind you. just quickly peek over the back of your shoulder to your left, air force one just came right into a perfect view for us. thank you very much. but i want to ask you, this was a campaign stop in green bay that was really supposed to happen tuesday, which the president cancelled because of the storm and emergency work that he needed to do. so what did they do? did they go on with the event as scheduled and then add this one, or have they just rejigged the schedule? >> reporter: they sort of adjusted it a little bit. i think it was an evening event was the idea on tuesday. but for instance, charles woodson, who, yes, did make that very generous $100,000 donation -- or announced it here to the red cross, he was goi

ohio. meantime, in another swing state, that of virginia, bill clinton campaigning on behalf of the president. let's listen in at chesapeake, virginia, at indiana river high school. [ applause ] >> i don't know about you, but i'd rather you save the gasoline and export the oil if that's what we need to do. and that's why governor romney is having such a hard time breaking through in ohio. so what did he do? he ran -- he put -- he put a bogus ad on saying that for president had allowed jeep to move jobs to china. then he said the president had allowed chrysler, which owns jeep, to move jobs to china. then not satisfied with that, since fiat owns part -- he said -- i can't make this up. he said that the president had allowed the italians to move jobs to china. >> all right. you're listening there to bill clinton. he's in indian river high school there in chesapeake, virginia, campaigning on behalf of the president who is campaigning in the swing state of ohio. of course, if you want to see any more of clinton's speech, go to cnn.com/live right now. all right. now to the latest on supe

interesting that you have him going to this region and concentrating a lot of effort here. bill clinton was here last night. he has an event that should be going off about as we speak, and there's a lot of attention here. vice president biden was here in wisconsin last week. paul ryan was here yesterday. mitt romney is going to be here tomorrow. wisconsin getting an outsized amount of attention, you could say. >> another place getting a lot of attention, virginia. that is where mitt romney earlier today gave a speech. he is going to be doing at least three different cities and towns in that state. i want you to hear this, briana. this is what his message earlier this morning. >> now, the president's proposal in a setting like this is to continue on the same road. he has a campaign slogan that was forward. i saw the signs out front. forward. i think forewarned is a better word. >> briana, yol, mitt romney has taken the gloves off. he is now going back on attack mode. do we expect that is going to play out the next five days on both sides? >> reporter: yeah. i think you already saw that here.

i understand bill clinton will be picking up a number of campaign appearances on the campaign trail. so that is going to help matters. president obama can say, well, i'm president. and, you know, this takes priority over politics. and i think that will basically sit well with voters. >> let's talk about mitt romney. he decided to turn a campaign event in ohio into a relief effort. collecting food and collecting goods to send to the people who have been affected by superstorm sandy. good, bad, what? >> i think it was a very smart political move. again, you don't want to come off too overtly political. i think that was just the right measured response to the disaster. and i think if he went to -- you know, on a media tour of the disaster site that would seem too opportunistic, almost politically desperate. i think he made the right call there. >> the only thing is that reporters at the end of this event were shouting at him, asking him if he supported fema, if fema should disappear. governor romney didn't answer their questions. why do you suppose that was? >> because he knows that th

back to the tax rates they paid when bill clinton was in office. because as long as i'm president, i will never turn medicare into a voucher just to pay for another millionaire's tax cuts. i will never allow this nation to be plunged into another battle over health care reform just so insurance companies can jump back into the driver's seat. i will never allow politicians in washington to control health care choices that women should be making for themselves. so, wisconsin, we know what change is. we know what the future requires. we don't need a big government agenda or a small government agenda. we need a middle class agenda that rewards hard work and responsibility. we don't need a partisan agenda. we need a commonsense agenda that says when we educate a poor child, we'll all be better off. that says when we fund the research of a young scientist, her new discovery will benefit every american. we need a vision that says we don't just look out for ourselves. we look out for one another. we look out for future generations, and we meet those obligations by working together. that's th

president who shared our beliefs and his name was bill clinton. his economic plan asked the wealthiest americans to invest more and help america, and at the same time a senate candidate by the name of mitt romney said that bill clinton's plan would hurt the economy and kill jobs. it turns out that the governor's math was just as bad back then as it is today. because by the end of president clinton's second term, america had created 23 million new jobs and incomes were up, and poverty down and we had the biggest surplus in history instead of a deficit. so we know that the ideas that we believe work. we know that their ideas don't work. for most of the last decade, we tried what they want to do, and giving big tax cuts to the wealthiest americans that we could not afford. we tried giving insurance companies and oil companies and wall street free rein to do what they pleased, and you know what we got? falling incomes, record deficits, the slowest job growth in half a century, and an economic crisis that we have been cleaning up after for the last four years. so, we know what we want to do

romney is sort of punching above his way, so to speak. barack obama needs to get bill clinton to do more spoechs for him. >> some colorful comments, don, obviously. they're not going to the polls on tuesday. they can really be candid about their opinions on the u.s. people talking from all around the globe. go to cnn's open mike project at cnn.com/world view. you can hear dozens of people weighing in with their election views. >> all right, azadeh, thank you very much. some more campaign news now just in. to morrisville, pennsylvania, where mitt romney is speaking live. >> accomplishing change isn't just something i talk about. it's something i've done and it's something i will do as president of the united states. now if you believe we can do better [ crowd chanting ] if you believe we can do better, if you believe americans can be on a better course, if you're tired of being tired, i ask you to vote for real change. paul ryan and i will bring real change to america on day one. when i'm elected, the economy and the american job market will be stagnant but i'm not going to waste any time

was bill clinton. and you know, his economic plan, when he first came into office, he asked the wealthiest americans to pay a little bit more so we could reduce our deficit and still invest in the skills and ideas of our people. and you know what? at the time, the republicans in congress and a senate candidate by the name of mitt romney, i don't want you to boo, i want you to vote. i want you to vote. but a republican candidate by the name of mitt romney said, bill clinton's plans would hurt the economy and kill jobs. turns out his math was just as bad then as it is now. because by the end of president clinton's second term, america created 23 million new jobs and incomes were up and poverty was down and our deficit had turned into a surplus. so florida, we know that our ideas work. we also know that their ideas don't. because we tried their ideas too. we trieded giving big tax cuts to the wealthiest americans. we tried giving insurance companies and oil companies and wall street free reign to do whatever they wanted and what did we get? falling interest rates and the slowest gr

. bill clinton was imbalanced. so he needed those strangers. so he would spend the hours between 6:00 and 9:00 talking to people in congress whereas president obama's basically with his family during those hours, which is sort of a balancing to do. but not necessarily good for a president. >> when working in town here in washington, in the evenings, 6:30, we want to be at the dinner table with our kids. and i want to be helping with their homework. i think that's sometimes interpreted as me not wanting to be out there slapping backs and wheeling and dealing. and it really has more to do with just the stage we are in our lives. >> if you're reelected, your girls will be older. they'll probably have their own weekend plans. might not want to hang out with mom and dad. >> it's already starting to happen. >> do you think you might do more outreach or what you call back-slapping with members of congress? >> my hope is that getting past this election, people i will have an opportunity maybe to step back and say, you know what, the differences that divide us aren't as important as the common

. the president was supposed to rally with former president bill clinton in florida. that's not happening. president obama, he arrived back in d.c. got off air force one. you can see the pictures there. quickly got into the motorcade. normally he is flown in a rain chopper from the joint andrews base in maryland, but weather forcing a road trip back to the white house. that often happens when the weather is pretty bad. they don't want to take any security risks or chance there's. the president scheduled to make remarks about hurricane sandy. that is happening at about 20 minutes or so, 12:45 eastern to be exact, so keep it right here because we're obviously going to dip into that. going to carry his speech live, the briefing. he will talk, obviously, about what the white house and the administration is doing, the number of phone calls, conference calls that he has been making throughout the morning and throughout the weekend preparing for hurricane sandy. of course, in the midst of all of this, we've got new national polls showing mitt romney holding a slight lead in the preside
